Industry towers over rock art at Burrup peninsula.

On Monday 27 August 2018, WA Premier Mark McGowan announced that the WA State Government will recommend nominating the globally significant rock art of Murujuga (the Burrup Peninsula) for UNESCO’s Tentative World Heritage List.

While this is great news, FARA and many other key stakeholders are still deeply concerned that the McGowan Government’s policy of further industrialisation near sensitive Burrup rock art risks undermining the chances of successful UNESCO listing.

FARA responds to State Government announcement it will progress Burrup Tentative World Heritage Listing
